What will I learn?

How do companies and organizations gain sustainable competitive advantage through technology and innovation? How do companies and organizations create, capture and deliver value through technology? These are the fundamental questions we seek to address in the Master of Science in Management of Technology and Innovation (MOTI) programme.

The MOTI programme is designed to provide engineers, scientists and business professionals having a background or interest in technology with the cutting edge knowledge, frameworks and tools of innovation and technology management. The emphasis is on the effective anticipation, creation, and use of technology to innovate products and processes to accomplish the strategic and operational objectives of an organization. The need for MOTI training at the postgraduate level has been well recognised by leading organizations and top universities around the world. Taught by world-class faculty and industry leaders, the topics covered include innovation and intellectual property management, disruption and evolution of technology, technology strategy and forecasting, new product development, venture creation, entrepreneurial strategy and finance, and many more.

For careers in research and development (R&D), the MSc MOTI will prepare you to be a proactive member of your R&D department and accelerate your development as an effective manager and leader. For non-R&D careers such as corporate development and planning, data analytics, finance, marketing, logistics, technology transfer, design and manufacturing, the programme will prepare you to be a future leader in a technology-enabled organization and open doors to new and exciting opportunities. For aspiring entrepreneurs, you will be able to learn how to create new ventures and use salient entrepreneurial and technology strategies in an immersive and interactive environment.

Domain-specific focus in the programme is also available if you wish to deepen your understanding in any of the following areas of specialization:

Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E)

Data Analytics for Innovation Management (DAIM)

Product Management and Digital Strategy (PMDS)
